Re: How does one "escape" a game window in Linux?

If you change the mouse confinement mode from "Window" to "Mouse Box", it should let you Alt-Tab. Otherwise, I'd avoid using the version packaged with Ubuntu as Debian does silly stuff with their packaging, such as running a game server automatically. They're also still using SDL...

Re: Launch and cursor issues

Yes, I think XWayland or Wayland doesn't allow us to move the mouse cursor, so I also think that centering the mouse after respawning doesn't work. Going forward, the way to fix that will be to use relative mouse movement and drawing a fake cursor or indicator ourselves.

Re: Help With Finding Source of Jitter?

Sure, running BitTorrent or other downloads could impact BZFlag. But then the question should really be "Are you running downloads on your computer/network?" instead of "Is UPnP enabled?", since the latter isn't the cause of the network issues.

Re: Help With Finding Source of Jitter?

UPnP allows software running on computers to manage some aspects of the network's router, such as forwarding ports. UPnP is irrelevant with the exception of a non-default build of the game server that, as far as I know, is only built that way on Gentoo. And even then it's only to automatically forwa...

Re: HDPI Monitor with scaling

Note that the second screenshot isn't public. However, I did see that same issue when I used resolution scaling in XFCE. Though I had set mine to 2x, which caused BZ to only show up in the bottom left quadrant of the screen. Using window scaling (in the Appearance settings) worked correctly with BZF...

Your name here doesn't match your in-game name. Here you have hypens, but in-game you're using spaces. You can rename your account by clicking on your name in the top right here and clicking on User Control Panel. Once there, go to Profile and then Edit Account Settings.

Things to try: Run plugged in to AC power (not just battery) (Reason: Some systems run the WiFi in more of a power-save mode when on battery) Try enabling or disabling the FPS Limit in the game. Move closer to your WiFi access point Try changing the 2.4GHz WiFi channel on your router (1, 6, or 11) T...

Re: Our IRC chat channels have moved from Freenode to Libera.Chat

Note that the old freenode servers have been shut down, with the exception of at least one. However, the normal services (nickserv, chanserv, etc) are no longer running, and the server is misconfigured to allow rogue users to take their place. So someone is using the nickserv name with the intent of...

Re: Launch and cursor issues

If you run Gnome on Xorg instead of Wayland the cursor shows up. Not ideal, but it's at least a workaround for now. From the computer's login screen, click on your user name, and then in the bottom right click on the gear and pick Gnome on Xorg. I didn't see the launch problem here. I'm not sure whi...

Our IRC chat channels have moved from Freenode to Libera.Chat

We have had chat rooms on the Freenode IRC network since at least early 2002. On May 19th, 2021, due to a disagreement/dispute regarding management of the network, about 20 to 30 Freenode volunteer staff members resigned. Some of them went on to create a new IRC network called Libera.Chat. Since the...

Re: player ID in score question

It can be used when issuing bans or kicks, but because the numbers get reused if a player leaves and someone else joins (or simply because they're easy to type wrong), it can lead to kicking/banning the wrong player. It is tied to having either the PLAYERLIST permission or having the admin status (t...
